Methodist Junior School

Everyone at Lowe’s Wong Junior School is expected to take responsibility for their learning and to respect themselves and others


Physical Education

The intent of our Physical Education Curriculum is to:

  • Inspire learners to realise their potential and develop a life-long interest in sport, health and an active lifestyle
  • Combine the skills and techniques above when applying to different activities.
  • Encourage team spirit and teamwork that demonstrates an ability to work collaboratively with others, regardless of ability.
  • Promote being physically active as part of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Encourage a desire to improve on performance and technique.


Implementation of our Physical Education Curriculum

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We plan opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness linked to science and RSHE. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.


Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. The PE progression documents ensures that skills are linked, embedded and built upon.


PE is taught by class teachers and our PE curriculum is inclusive ensuring that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities that we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead active, healthy lives. Teachers use the progression of big ideas and progression of skills documents to aid lesson planning within year group teams. There are a range of schemes of work and videos available to aid the planning of progression in each year group. Each child receives two sessions of PE per week. 


At Lowe’s Wong Junior, swimming is taught in Year 4 by the County Swimming Service. Dance is taught in a yearly block by a specialist teacher during Carousel.


Many extra-curricular opportunities are available for students.

Clubs include: Year 6 rounders, Year 6 cricket, Year 5 and 6 hockey, Year 3 and 4 mixed football tournament, cross-country, Year 4 multi-skills


School teams include: Year 5/6 A and B-team football, Year 5/6 Girls’ football team, Year 3/4 football team, Swimming Gala Team, Sports Hall Athletics, Summer Athletics, Year 5/6 hockey team


The school is proud of its outstanding record in competitive sport where we are regular finalists at county level and even represented the Midlands at the National Finals in 2019.


The intended impact of our Physical Education Curriculum is that:

By the end of Key Stage 2, children will have:

  • happy memories of their involvement in sport
  • age appropriate skills and knowledge developed through curriculum PE
  • experience of a wide range of sports and physical activities
  • a level of interest and excitement generated by competition
  • an enjoyment of physical activity at whatever level they choose to engage in


Throughout our school, we seek to create an environment where all children have fun in their PE lessons and enjoy taking part in sport.  Differing levels of competitive opportunities are available to children, with children actively encouraged to take part in these events. The frequency with which we take multiple teams is evidence of our participation rates.


Mr Luetkemeier is our Physical Education Subject Leader.


Here is an overview of what each year group does in the different terms:

Class PE timetable


Year 4 swim annually for a minimum of 9 weeks at Southwell Minster Pool with the focus on achieving their 25metre badge and to be able to swim a range of strokes effectively.  The stronger swimmers then have the opportunity to perform 'safe self-rescue in different water-based situations'.
